Further Lounge Info

Important Information

This Lounge is Open to Guests Travelling Only to Non-Schengen destinations

Faro Airport recently underwent renovations, aiming to simplify the journey through the terminal. This resulted in two new lounges, one for guests travelling to Non-Schengen destinations, such as the UK and Ireland, and another for those flying to Schengen destinations. The Non-Schengen CIP Lounge is suitable only for those travelling to outside of the Schengen area (put simply, if you need your passport to enter your destination country, this lounge is for you). If you still aren't sure, our friendly Customer Service team can help - get in touch

Catching Your Flight

All lounges have flight information screens within the lounge and due to the number of flights departing at any one time, flight announcements aren't made by lounge staff - we'd ask you to keep an eye on when your flight leaves.

We're Open to All Travelers

We welcome all travelers whether you are travelling economy or first class and as long as you agree to our terms and conditions of entry and have a valid boarding pass. We are also open to you no matter which airline you are travelling with. Do make sure that your flight leaves from the terminal you are booking.

Drinks, Snacks & Hot Food

Drinks and snacks are provided completely free of charge. We do ask that you enjoy the food and drink within the lounge and don't take it out.

Some items are only available at selected times of the day (ie breakfast items). Champagne and Prosecco are available for an additional charge during the booking process. Alcohol is not available to anyone under the age of 18.

Length of Stay

This lounge is a third party lounge meaning the length of stay is 2 hours.


  • After security control follow the directions towards Gates B.
  • After passport control, pass through the Duty Free shop.
  • After exiting Duty Free, the Non-Schengen CIP Lounge will be on your left hand side.
